"6million for an unproven premier league striker? Yes, this guy is the real thing, but will he even get first team opportunities atm?! what other proven strikers that will immediately fit into the first team can we get for 6million?"

"We are unfortunately miles away from the top teams in terms of funding for players, we are going the younger cheaper route but Im not convinced this will bring us success, even spurs are ahead of us in the transfer stakes, says it all. We still have to beleive I guess, not much we can do but support our beloved team. YNWA"

"since Maestro Benitez left the club our signings (bar Suarez) have been disastrous. Ince is another confirmation of the uphill struggle this club will face in the future. We are signing players fit for a mid-table team - and paying double the price for them :( FSG have got it totally wrong with this coach!!!"

"from a deal we will get some money back. Also this guy knows the club and can play in a few positions, which is good. So we will pay for him like 2-3 mil. And his wages will be low."

"When are people going to wake up and realise what is happening to our club. Supporting the team is not the same as critising the disasterous running of the CLUB as a whole. we will never buy a player over 27 at their peak cuz after 3 yrs there's no RESALE value which is all FSG are interested in...

"Sick of the lack I ambition shown by the club and fans as well. I love this club but for the money we spent on Allen, Borini, Assaidi and Sturridge we could of bought Cavini (would easily score goals!!) and either Alonso or Hansik!! That's between 25 - 30 million!! Leaves us 10 mil so the 6 we are ready to pay for Ince could of been spent on Sturridge with 4 mil to spare!! Joke of a club"
REDSARGE
9th Jan 2013 11:37
"Under FSG we will only ever be a mid table club brining through players to sell to the richer clubs for profit. Thats the reality of it and saying does not mean I dont support the team we have. The CLUB comes first and The transfer policy is wrong in every way. We need quality players in their prime to be challenging for the league and top 4 consistently. "

"Hmm hes an attacking winger for a start and will give us more goal threat in a 4 3 3 has a good goal return young player when has brendan not given the youngsters a chance this season?? Also what problems do we seem to be having at the moment because im not seeing many do you watch football or just comment on it..."
REDSARGE
9th Jan 2013 11:39
"RESALE value should be the least of our worries. At least 3 yrs of top quality is what we should be signing players for. Our next load of signings must be 25yrs+ with lots of experience at a high level."

"Agreed AfricanSubzero , we need men not kids for the future. We need us to be in top 4 this season if possible. "

9th Jan 2013 12:14
"We will never get top 4 this season. Not in anyone's wildest dreams. We are good enough to take 7th from WBA. after that there are Arsenal, Everton and Chelsea. They will ALL have to lose at least 3 games while we win EVERY game in order to get 4th. We are not gonna win all of our 17 games so if we even win 14 then ALL those 3 teams will have to lose 6 games each for us to get 4th. "

"Ben....are u actually serious, the money isn't just in deals themselves but players wages, and why on earth would Cavani come to us when we aren't in the champions league. Can't believe how much people have started to get on Allen, first month he was our player of the month then after that his performances have dipped but support him don't abuse him"

"Redsarge, we can still get forth, it isn't unimaginable that the team above lose 3 games in he last half, they all have already lost and drew a lot in the first half, if we won a few of the silly draws and losses, (against villa) then wed be right up there "

"What majority of the Liverpool fans fail to realise is the amount of attacking minded players you need to push for top 4. Over the years we have had to rely on 1 or 2 players, looking at this year it has improved slightly and no doubt with Ince included, we will push for the league next year. The ones that question/doubt this having got the knowledge. "

"I have said it before and will do so again this is a mistake. Blackpool are being greedy. We dont need Ince now with Sturridge in. He too hasn't been tested yet butIam hopeful he will combine well with Suarez. Sunday's game will be an indication of where we are headed. "

"Ramesh13 - If you are Indian, I would label you as a "pagal" fan. Top 4 this season is a big ask seeing as the summer transfers bar Assaidi were below average. To get to top 4 or even win the league, the signings need to be spot on before the season starts. "
Luis7Sturridge15
9th Jan 2013 14:08
"REDSARGE - The difference is that we won a cup last year and got to a final. We are playing better football and we have a great set of youngsters coming through and already breaking into the first team. Any Liverpool fan would take top 4 this year or even next. "

9th Jan 2013 14:13
"Rapazinho - You need to realise why we are after Ince, he will simply give Sterling a chance to rest every now and then as it is very much needed. United are on another level to us so a single game will not reflect where we are heading. I still predict a top 6 finish and when we do, I have a list on notepad with all the numpties that were/are against BR. "

"As it has been said above, our transfers are an absolute joke for LFC, unless the decision makers are happy with mid-table mediocrity. Why is it all we buy is British? Swansea bought Michu for how much? 2mil and we are doing this. This club is heading no where and fast! They really are giving us fans nothing, not even future hope...V.SAD!"

"How can you say we always buy British when the players BR has brought in are: Borini (Italy), Assaidi (Morocco), Yesil (Turkish/German), Allen (Welsh) and Sturridge (English). Add in Sahin (Turkey) and that's 3 out of 5 that are from Europe. So tired of hearing "lets not buy British" garbage from supporters (and I use that term loosely!)"

"I remember he looked good with the reserves when we had him first. He's come on leaps and bounds and importantly now offers a greater goal threat. It sounds like a really good price (£4Million - with the clause subtracted from 6mill) for a player of his ability. Forget about losing him in the first place, he chose to leave to get first team games."

"A good start to the tranfer window with the Sturridge signing but now Cole has left, Morgan has gone on loan and there is talk of the Sahin loan deal being terminated. BR has complained about the size of the squad yet we still seem to be letting more leave then come in. I don't see the Ince deal happening and I fear that it's because we can't afford the transfer fee. "
